Great watch for low price,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
First, about the delivery. I placed my ordered on Thursday night, and even though I selected the slowest method of delivery, I already had it by Monday morning !
I bought this watch as a temporary cheep replacement for an expensive Swiss watch that needed some repair time. Now that I have this Casio, I might just put the other watch in a safe place, and use it only for special occasions.
This watch deliver everything that is promissed. Personally, I would like a watch that is all metal, while this one has some plastic parts in the case, but that required buying a more expensive model.
The display is clear and large enough (for me at least), the band is comfortable and so far reliable. It hasn't broken or opened, even after few hours of hard work at the back yard.
I find it relatively easy to operate the many functions it has, once one undestand the logic behind it. I will never use all the functions (three alarms - one is enough for me, 30 page database - my cell phone has more, and is easier to operate), and I believe that some of them are only selling gimmicks. However, nothing can beat the main advantage of this watch - it's price. I went to several department stores and checked their cheep watches, and yes, I could get watches for as low as $9, but non of them looked as nice and had both the alarm and countdown timer, which are important to me.
The only drawback I can find, and even that is only esthetic, is the ilumination, which is an old type lightbulb, not the cool blue light.
I would not pay $100 for this watch, but at $20 it is an excelent buy.
